Good morning! Today’s album is “Swooner” by The Zolas. I liked their earlier albums too, but this one leans hard into an electronic vibe you can dance to. I’ve been listening to this when I run 🏃
Favourite song is “Freida on the Mountain”, because it features *heavy* sampling of the Star Trek: TNG transporter sound effect ✨
Good morning! Today's album is "Forcefield" by Tokyo Police Club
I know what you're thinking – what about Champ? What about Elephant Shell? And to that I say: all Tokyo Police Club albums are
Plus the first song "Argentina (Parts I, II, III)" absolutely bangs, check it out, it's my favourite.
Good morning! Today is the last day I share albums each morning. And it shouldn't surprise anyone that I'm ending with The Weakerthans' final album, the live recording of their final concert.
The Weakerthans, and John K Samson, mean a lot to me. Their songs helped me when I was in a bad place, and learning to play those songs helped me leave. Their final album is band at its peak - favourite song is Wellington's Wednesdays, and let me tell you why...

Remember when Colm Meaney showed up in Stargate: Atlantis as a bad guy? So good.
They brought him onto DS9 originally because the producers thought he was too good an actor to leave in TNG’s transporter room.

@ashfurrow i'm predicting at least 3 cate replies from pleroma instances on this one
@bclindner pleroma =
I gave up actually
@ashfurrow me no get :(
@victor Ruby on Rails is the web framework that Mastodon uses. Nerds often complain that “Rails doesn’t scale” despite many popular sites that use it.
@ashfurrow thanks Ash, what I didn't get was, who's that boy at the last picture
@ashfurrow I listened to someone from Basecamp (maybe DHH, but can’t completely remember) on a podcast lay into Twitter devs about how Ruby/Rails are perfectly fine but you still have to architect your app properly, and how they used Scala as a way to rewrite the app and blame the past shortcomings on the old tech. Was beautiful.
@ashfurrow I mean, everything scales vertically. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
@ashfurrow That might only be true if you're not in a Gloryhammer album.
@ashfurrow Morn is the true MVP.
@ashfurrow Looks like cement.
@ashfurrow Yes, Sir, Yes!!! 🍵🍰. 0x600D7EA.
@ashfurrow You've been chaining these replies since January 1st, goddamn. It's lagging my browser a little.
@Gargron I have been! Bit of an edge case 😅
@ashfurrow bah, those aren't bad.
the obsession dial needs to be turned up just a little more. I had a housemate who would re-do the cable management (even though nothing had changed) every 2 months or so. they were trying to improve matters. (which were already very good.)
I finally worked with people who were so obsessive, uh, honestly it would sound like I was making things up. it was crazypants. the more you want to hide or make your cables perfect, the more expensive it gets. $0.005
@ashfurrow Correct. But the clone tool in GIMP works wonders!
@gboyd42 but then that wouldn’t be *flips hair back dramatically* la photographie verité
@ashfurrow True, but it's not as if you're reducing the cat by two dress sizes. Or layering a Picasso onto your wall. Or even (and this is my personal favourite) 'vacuuming' the carpet in post production.
@ashfurrow if I fits I sits
@ashfurrow it took me a second
@ashfurrow The Wii U was one of the best consoles ever.
@gudenau that’s what I hear, from the Wii U fans :P
@ashfurrow You can't argue with how good the gamepad was. A nice large controller with nearly limitless possibilities from the touch screen.
It was more perfect, but it's a much better feature than the Switch.
@gudenau I’m team GameCube for the record 🤩
@ashfurrow It might have the Gameboy player and the ASCII pad, butt the link cable isn't the same thing.
@ashfurrow I much prefer his webcomic.
@ashfurrow oh I didn't know he was on SG: Atlantis! Neat, I like him. :)
(Atlantis didn't grab me as much as the original SG-1 but SG: Universe blew my frickin mind!)
@ashfurrow What, exactly, is her problem with shoes?
@ashfurrow The cooking show she does is titled Barefoot Contessa.
@ashfurrow .... okay but I would totally eat that
